Group Trick win BLAST Bounty Hunt, sweep OG for fifth straight competition win|Dot Esports
It doesn’t matter what the prize is, Team Secret decline to lose. The Dota 2 team won their 5th straight competition with a 3-0 sweep over OG at BLAST Bounty Hunt today.
Not only was this Secret’s 5th tournament win in a row, however across all five events, Puppey and his group have not dropped a single video game in a grand finals set.
The last time Secret lost in the finals of an occasion was at WePlay! Dota 2 Pull of War: Mad Moon, when Nigma squeezed out a 3-2 victory. But that was nearly 4 months back, and ever since, Secret have been ripping through the competitive scene in Europe.
On the other hand, OG have actually had combined efficiencies in almost every tournament over the last 2 months, jumping in between 2nd and 13th location finishes while still revealing flashes of radiance sometimes. Things seem to have actually supported at BLAST, with the team getting to play another full tournament with its main roster, publishing beneficial outcomes as they seek to move on.
Unlike their clash in the upper bracket finals, Secret didn’t have much difficulty cleaning up each match against OG. Puppey even had an opening video game on Nature’s Prophet where he dealt more damage and protected more kills than any of the gamers on OG.
OG led just once throughout the series, with a small dip into the positive in video game 2 for less than 45 seconds before Secret took control again and closed out that video game in 22 minutes.
As for the distinct style of the BLAST Bounty Hunt event, just 2 of the four bounties were actually finished, however that did lead to an enjoyable twist in the standings. While OG ended up second, Nigma, the third location group, in fact earned nearly $300 more due to taking the VIP Bounty in among the earlier rounds.
Here are the last standings for the event and how the overall reward pool wound up being distributed.
